Jennings Randolph sends an autograph letter of thanks to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
Autograph Letter signed twice: "Jennings" after text and "JR" after postscript, as U.S. Senator, 1p, 6¼x8½. His personal Senate letterhead. Washington, D.C., 1979 November 19. To "Dear Pat" [Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan]. In full: "At Home at night. Thanks for your letter of November 13, brought to my attention yesterday. As I began to read your 'pondering' on Salt the realization surfaced that it was in depth but also in considerable volume. P.S. - Our comments, good friend, will be given as you suggest." The second Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT II) was signed by President Carter and Soviet General Secretary Brezhnev in Vienna, June 18, 1979, and submitted to the Senate. The controversial pact never came to a vote, however. President Carter withdrew it from the Senate when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan (1980). Both nations stated that they would observe the agreement, however, until 1985, when President Reagan declared that the Soviet Union had been violating it and that the United States would no longer be bound by it. RANDOLPH (1902-1998), a West Virginia Democrat, served in the U.S. House of Representatives (1933-1947). Defeated for re-election in 1946, he left elective office for a decade, and then returned to the U.S. Senate (1958-1985). Randolph's service in Congress began with Franklin Roosevelt's first term and ended with Ronald Reagan's second, more than half a century later! DIRECTLY FROM THE SALE OF THE ESTATE OF DANIEL PATRICK MOYNIHAN. MOYNIHAN (1927-2003) represented New York in the U.S. Senate as a Democrat for four terms (1977-2001).
